Supporting our students, ensuring teacher effectiveness

Senate Republicans have finalized legislation to require Michigan schools to base certain percentages of their teacher and administrator evaluations on student growth and assessment data.

Senate Bill 103 also affords school districts the flexibility to decide on their own evaluation tool to ensure student success and growth. No two schools are the same, and emphasizing local metrics helps fit individual district needs.

SB 103 is another example of smart, commonsense legislation under Senate Republican leadership. It creates accountability for both the student and the teacher to deliver the best classroom learning environment possible, and ensures we have the best teachers in our classrooms.

Strong leadership matters.
